  Dragging window to resize is reversed after resizing with keyboard

Status in Compiz:
  Fix Committed
Status in Compiz 0.9.11 series:
Status in compiz package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
    After right-clicking the titlebar of a resizeable window and selecting "resize," pressing the up arrow key to attach the cursor to the top edge of the window, resizing the window, and clicking or hitting enter to deselect the top edge, dragging the bottom edge of the window with the cursor no longer resizes the window in the proper direction.
    Using the mouse to select the top edge or using the right-click, rezise, move method on the bottom edge still produce the right behavior.  This happens in all applications that use resizable windows.  I'm reproducing this bug with the default unity on Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS

  I have attached a video demonstrating the bug.
